I Have Two 20gb Installations

Long story short, when I installed SWTOR using the setup.exe, I checked the box to add a shortcut to my start menu. Hurray, right? The first time I launched the game using that shortcut, I used a trial account to make sure that my new laptop could handle the game - it did, and all was well with the world - and then I reactivated this account to start where I left off all those eons (months) ago. The second time I tried to start the launcher, it came up with the error "Unable to load main bundle." Needless to say, I despaired! I went into a spiraling drunken depression for ten minutes.

Okay, at this point, long story short seems flat wrong. So I decided to try and play SWTOR from the EA folder and not the Origin folder (the launcher's file location, the one that was pinned to my start menu, was to the Origin Games folder). The launcher pops up, yay! But the kicker is it starts installing the game all over again. When it was done, it's worked without a problem. Now I just have one problem: Can I clear up space on my harddrive by deleting some of the larger files from the Origin Games folder, or will that potentially screw things up too? I now have 40gb worth of SWTOR stuff.

Thanks for your time.~

Old adage:

If it's working don't screw with it.

Greetings DrGhostly,

When you click on a shortcut icon, it will find the file that executes the launcher. This executable file has to be surrounded by the other files and assets that come along with it during a successful installation.

You do not need to have the game installed in two separate locations. If possible delete the copy of the game you are having issues with. Then run the repair tool on the remaining copy of SWTOR that is still present on your hard drive, to maintain file integrity.

This can be done by selecting the repair option in the launcher options menu. This is found by clicking the cog in the bottom left corner of your launcher after you have logged in and applied any outstanding patches.

If you need any further assistance or advice on how to do this, please return and let us know here .

Thank you.
